Cut Your Store Bill
Down One Half'
Tens of thousands of farmers as well as
town and city folks cut down their store
bills one-half last ye i r and saved money
in spite of generally short.crops and re
Absolutely millions of dollars were
saved and countless families lived better
than ever before in the face of the cotton
crisis and general business depression.
How were these burdensome store bills
cut down? By the real money-saving
power of good home gardens, rightly
planted and kept planted and tended
through the season. -
Hastings 1916 Seed Catalogue tells how
to cut store bills down; tells about gar
deln and farm seeds of kinds and a qual
ity that cannot be bought from your mer
chant or druggist. It's full of garden and
farm information. It's tree - if ypu ask
for it. Write for it now. . G. HASTINGS

W. H. Stewart of route 2 came into
The Sentinel offiee one day last week to
subscribe for the paper. He had been
getting The Sentinel up until a few
weeks ago, and as his folks sometimes
told him there was nothing much in the
paper he decided when his time was out
he would not take it any more for a
while. But he said when the paper
stopped its regular weekly visits it
seemed like a member of the family had
gone away and he decided he didn't
want to do without it any longer. His
family, too, missed the regular weekly
visits, so he had it started again. Of
course we are mighty glad- to have him
back with us and hope he will remain
with us a long time and we will try to
make The Sentinel a welcome visitor in
his and all other homes where it goes.
The Sentinel is a Pickens county family
paper and should go into every home in
the county. At two cents a week every
family can afford it, and it is worth far
more than that. *
